Turbulence Training Review

Turbulence Training promises fast fat loss results for men and women who do not have a lot of time for exercise. This is a bold promise, and the workouts promise maximum results in only three workouts per week. Let's take a look at this claim, and see if it really measures up! Before we get to the program, let's take a look at the expert behind the workouts. I've come across Craig Ballantyne's name many times in popular fitness magazines such as Men's Health and Men's Fitness, and even in Oxygen and Shape magazines. So the program is clearly put together by a trusted fitness expert. I've also talked to Craig about his training and education background, and I'll be honest, it was impressive, unlike the trainers with weekend certificates that pop up at large commercial gyms. Craig's experience goes back to the mid-nineties, in both the gym and in the research lab. He's actually led research trials on sport supplements, strength training, and cardiovascular training. Plus, Craig has been a strength coach and has worked with hundreds of clients in thousands of training sessions. This is a unique, and thorough background, so its not surprising it's come up with a new training system for fat loss. In fact, Craig's articles are always pretty hard on traditional aerobic cardio workouts. So if you're looking for new ways to spend...

Velmax Intervals These are power based interviews I created based on research on increasing VO2 max and thresold power. To do these properly you will need a power meter and have tested your functional threshold power. These are among the hardest exchanges I have ever done so if you have less than a year of training under belt or are coming off a layoff, do not do these as you will probably throw up if done correctly. The performance gains from these are quite rapid so the prescribed intensity is for the first time you do these intervals. Usually each workout you will increase either the number of intervals or wattage you do them at after the first workout. Warmup 15-20 minutes Velmax intervals 30 seconds at 135% of FT...
